Thoughts on jumping for the third time as a ‘18 grad? Analyst -> Analyst -> Analyst (Senior Analyst comp)

If the comp is good and work is what you want to do, who cares about the title. We have the next 30+ years to progress in our career.

I agree. People usually do not question the beginning of your career because you are trying to get a feel for the firm/company and or different firms/teams/companies. If they do question it, then screw them because you do not want to work for them anyways. The culture nowadays with recent graduates (last 5 years) primarily has them jumping around industries/companies. Unfortunately not everyone understands that. In my honest personal opinion, I would definitely hire someone who went from like Tech to Entertainment to now IBD within the last 3 years. Same for internal departments too (e.g. back office, back office, front office). You can offer a more unique perspective compared to the person who worked at a Tier 1/2/3 firm for 3 years straight in the same role.

Unless you do a long stint in the 3rs role, I wouldn't even ask you to interview. It takes months for people to become productive and hiring people is a pain.

If you make the jump you’ll need to stay in this next role for at least 3 years. If your resume came across my desk with any less time I wouldn’t even give you a phone interview.

Jumping so quickly is a warning sign for hirers, unless the roles are very different and each move made career sense. If the roles are more or less similar, I would be very skeptical about bring someone like that in for an interview.

Don't let it bother you if the move makes sense. About to move into an analyst role in a new area and definitely going to be older, but in the long run, a couple years of sacrifice is worth it.

I did it due to toxic workplaces. Started the 3rd gig 2 months ago and 3x my comp since graduating in 2018.

Why would I hire a person who is switching jobs at the drop of a hat? I will incur a large cost in training him and within 3 months if he is expected to switch, then where is my gain in this?

Jump if it’s a promotion and a comp upgrade, especially if you don’t feel like you have potential where you’re at. You should only make title upgrades at this point in your career, not lateral moves.

As long as you can justify clearly... why not? But I’d stay in the new role for a couple of years. Also, try to negotiate the title e.g. associate with analyst comp...

I jumped 3 times in my first year and a half lol. I did it for good reason though. One time the fund I was at shutdown, left for a boutique where i planned on staying before I was given an opportunity to work for one of the largest banking groups in the world (obviously didn't say no to that). So I would consider why you're leaving and then get ready to commit to the next place for a couple of years.
